Homily for Conversion of St. Paul

One of the great blessings of having a regular midweek Divine Service is that we get to celebrate the minor feasts and festivals (see Lutheran Service Book, xxii-xxiii), which we may not always get to celebrate on Sundays.

This Wednesday's Divine Service gave us the privilege of remembering the Conversion of St. Paul--25 January. What a great account that is! If our Lord Jesus Christ can save a murderous, Christian-persecuting scoundrel such as Saul of Tarsus, He can certainly forgive me all of my many sins, no matter how great or small they may be. Wednesday's homily, "Loss for Christ," focused not only on how our Lord rescued Saul of Tarsus from himself, but also on how He rescues us from our ego-centered selves.
